Project background:

This is for a game called Eternal Exodus.

Another artist is already on the project and doing an amazing job, but there's so much art to do, so we've discussed having someone else come onboard to do the bulk of the NPC sprites.

Work description

- 50 NPCs in total

- The majority of these can be small variations of each other.  I was thinking it would make sense to draw 15 unique characters, and then the rest can be variations of each other: changing the color of hair/clothing, and perhaps some instances of mixing-and-matching (take hair from one NPC and the body/clothes of another, that sort of thing)

- I don't have any picky descriptions of what the NPCs should look like or what they should wear; I'm just looking for a generic mix of men and women to put mainly as villagers in the game.  Typical RPG stuff.  Clothing could be Victorian, or modern, or whatever-- it's its own sort of world, so there aren't any hard rules there.

Technical requirements:

- The game has a specific style in place, so I need someone who can match the style.  You can see some screenshots on the Steam page, and here's an example of one of the characters: https://i.imgur.com/VveI58h.png

- Base templates will be provided; please work off these.  Standard 12-frame spritesheets (4 directions times 3 frames each), roughly 18x32 pixels per frame.

- Please adhere to the game's existing palette.  I don't have a palette image to send, unfortunately, but I can send you screenshots or existing sprites/tilesets to grab colors from.

Legal info and payment info:
Before starting the work, I'll ask you to sign a contract made via DoContract to assign copyright of the work (once paid) to my company.  You'll receive a credit in the game and are free to show your work in your portfolio.  To be clear, I'm looking to pay someone upfront for their work here: no revenue-sharing or royalties.

I can pay via your preferred method out of PayPal, Venmo, or Cash App.  I respect your time, so you can rest assured that I'll pay promptly upon delivery of each batch of sprites: always within 24 hours, but usually even sooner.

Please post...
- A link to your portfolio

- Your availability.  It's okay if you can't start immediately, though.  Just looking to have it done by sometime in February or March.

- A price quote.  To reiterate, the work would be about 15 new characters and then 2-3 minor variations of each (recolorings, mainly), totaling 50 spritesheets.

Hello, my name is Bruno and I have been working as a professional pixel artist for over eight years in which I have developed different styles and aesthetics according to my clients needs.

I would love to help you bring your vision and characters come to life. I have seen your characters and What I think could work, since the will be 50, is to make some sort of character maker. I mean just make different parts of characters all sync so you could put, let's say a beard in one a it would fit perfectly. That way you could have not just 50, but many more. Of course this all would depend on how many caration parts you might want and how many parts would be.

This is a link to my portfolio:
https://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=24590.0

I have around 2 hours free right now, but I expect them to be more in the next weeks.

About the price, I do charge 25 USD per hour. So for something like this it should take around 40 minutes each character, I am not sure about this, but it's just a matter of  making one a measuring the time it takes and also it would depend on if you want to make the character maker or not.

You DM me or send me a message on discord:

Best wishes
Bruno
